Doster has completed construction on the first phase of a $34 million expansion and modernization of the 25-bed Ferrell Hospital in Eldorado, Illinois.

The construction added 55,000 square feet of space to the existing hospital and modernized the existing 17,400 square feet. A new emergency department was created, along with new diagnostic imaging, laboratory, phlebotomy, chemotherapy, surgical and ambulatory care unit spaces. New spaces for the front lobby, a front canopy, the cafeteria and registration were also completed.

A grand opening and ribbon cutting was held on October 30th and the new space will open to patients in November.

Doster was also awarded the second phase of the expansion, and construction began in August.
